Yeah I also have memory problems well only short term memory problems my long term memory is really good. But yes you should at least get your memory problems checked before you go to college. If you actually do have any type of learning disorders you should be able to get more time on tests or be able to take tests outside of class. There are several people who I have classes with now that get like 40% more time on test. The college you go to will have to give you extra time if a doctor recommends that you need more time,
